Private Lives

Synopsis

We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
A new wildlife film series
The Private Life of the Large White Butterfly
Filmed in incredible close-up by a new method developed at Oxford, the life-cycle of the insect is revealed in graphic detail, some sequences magnify events over 200 times.
From the tiny egg the emerging caterpillar gets through four new suits before pupating into a chrysalis for the winter. In spring the miracle of metamorphosis produces the fluttering butterfly of sunlight and flowers.
Narrated by MICHAEL ASPEL
Filmed by GERALD THOMPSON and eric SKINNER
Produced by JEFFERY BOSWALL (from Bristol)

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
